About 8 months ago, I received a letter from this Law Office stating that I owed Fingerhut a $118. I was mortified because I have never had any dealings with Fingerhut. I tried to call the Law Office but repeatedly was getting automated service telling me how to pay the bill. I pressed the option to speak to a customer service representative but only received automated hours of operations.

I just recently tried to get a credit card and was denied because of an account in collections. I got my credit report and saw that this company RJM Acquisitions Funding(collection agency) was on there and that the original creditor was Fingerhut.

They claim I opened this account in August of 2002 and that it went into collections in October of 2002.

I have since disputed this on my credit report. I'm hoping this will clear it up. In the meantime, I'm going to make a report with the Better Business Bureau.

Fair Debt Collection Law

Always document your disputes in writing. If a debt collector contacts you regarding a disputed debt, tell them in writing the nature of the dispute and instructing them not to contact you.

Wrong, wrong, wrong. file a lawsuit against this law firm

AUTHOR: Robert - (U.S.A.)

Donald, this law firm (I use this term loosely) has absolutely NO RIGHT to continue to contact you. What they are doing is breaking every Consumer debt law in the book, and you can actually file a lawsuit against them if they continue to harrass you.

#9 Author of original report

They informed me that Fingerhut had been bought by another company still using fingerhut name

AUTHOR: Michael - (U.S.A.)

I contacted the number on my credit report for RJM Acquisitions and also the Law Offices of Mitchell N. Kay and explained what was on my credit report. They informed me that Fingerhut had been bought by another company(still using fingerhut name)so, the old Fingerhut was trying to recoup money from people who had ordered from them(or hadn't in my case) and put them in collections stating that they never payed for what they ordered.

In speaking with the companies they took my information and said they would remove it from my credit report. I let a month go by before I pulled my credit report and it was in fact removed from my credit report and it only took them 2 weeks to do it. They also sent me a letter for my records just in case it popped up again in the future. They rectified the problem once I was able to speak with someone. The hardest part was locating them and getting in contact with someone.
